Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has revealed he turned down the chance to join Led Zeppelin due to loyalty to his current band.

According to Hennemusic, Tyler told Howard Stern he accepted an invitation to play with Jimmy Page after Robert Plant had ruled out a longer return to Led Zeppelin, but refused the legendary guitarist's offer of joining the band on a more permanent basis.

"I went over and played with Led Zeppelin," he is quoted as saying. "I spoke to Jimmy Page's manager, Peter Mench, who's been a good friend of mine for ever. He said Robert wouldn't play with them again, and would I want to come over and jam with the guys? I went, 'Hello?' I went over and played. So not only have I sung to Paul McCartney, but I've played with Led Zeppelin. I'm in heaven."

However, Tyler explained how his commitment to Aerosmith made any hook-up impossible. "I looked Jimmy in the eyes and it came time for him to say, 'You want to write a record with me?' I went, 'No.' I'm in Aerosmith," he claimed. "He's in the biggest band in the world and I'm in a band like that. I have such an allegiance to my band and I love it so much."

Steven Tyler recently put Aerosmith's future in doubt once again by telling Rolling Stone he has been having trouble getting in touch with bandmate Joe Perry.
